With NBA free agency and the 2019 Draft in the rearview, the rosters for next season are nearly set, which means we get our first look at the all-important player ratings for NBA 2K20 ahead of the game's September 6 release.

LeBron James and Kawhi Leonard lead the pack at 97, while 2018/19 Most Valuable Player Giannis Antetokounmpo sits just behind at 96, alongside Kevin Durant and James Harden to round out the top 5.

2020 cover star Anthony Davis came in at no. 7 on the list, forming the league's best duo with James, just ahead of Leonard and Paul George of the Los Angeles Clippers, followed by another set of new duos in Brooklyn's Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant and Houston's James Harden and Russell Westbrook.
